Five difference-makers from Montgomery County are among ten everyday heroes who are leaving their lasting mark on the region, according to a staff report from Main Line Today.

Rev. Carolyn C Cavaness is the first female pastor in the 125-year-long history of Bethel AME Ardmore Church.

With the church’s community garden and 30-ish at-home versions, she helps up to 3,000 people fight food insecurity.

Lisie Abrams, a real estate agent with Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Fox & Roach, is the other person behind the garden at Bethel AME.

“The idea was to alleviate food insecurity by having the church distribute food to parishioners,” said Abrams.

Meanwhile, Narberth’s Greg Seltzer, a high-powered mergers-and-acquisitions lawyer at Ballard Spahr, organizes the annual Philly Music Fest which raises funds for music education programs.

Muneera Walker, the first woman to win an industrial arts award at Harriton High School, formed Neighbors Helping Neighbors on the Main Line to help people facing food insecurities.
